Electromobility – an essential solution for achieving the global climate goals. But the transformation to e-mobility will only succeed if sufficient charging options are available for drivers. In this context, ubitricity recognised early on that charging an electric vehicle is not comparable to filling up an internal combustion engine car.
The idea of urban lamp post charging was born.

Why is public charging infrastructure needed?
Needs of EV drivers in cities
- Charging option at home, at work and on the road
- Easy access to charge points, especially for people without private parking spaces
- Sufficient charging infrastructure to avoid waiting times
Outlook: cities in 2030
- Strong increase in EVs in Europe (40 million EVs in 2030)
- Expansion of bans for combustion engine cars in major cities
- Strong expansion of urban charging infrastructure necessary
Advantages of AC charging in urban regions
Cities will need significantly more public, quickly scalable and easily accessible charging stations in the near future. The so-called AC charging of EVs offers many advantages in this context.
Charging with alternating current (AC charging), often referred to as low-power charging, includes charging capacities between 3,7 kW to 22 kW. In everyday life, public AC charging offers enormous advantages, as…
EVs have long parking times, especially overnight.
40 to 60 percent of city residents do not have a private parking space.
the AC charging stations can be installed cost-efficiently and quickly.

Lamp post charging – the logical consequence
ubitricity combines the advantages of urban public AC-charging with the knowledge that, unlike fossil fuels, electricity is already available all around us – for example in urban lamp posts.
The transformation of lamp posts into charging stations benefits not only drivers, but also cities in particular.
